It was a pleasure and honor to know Mr. Benton, he always had an encouraging word to say to me when I was first starting out in my business, he also assisted me in staying positive when I thought of giving up working for myself. He will be missed. Rick

What a wonderful tribute to such a wonderful and deserving man. He touched so many lives, including mine and he will be sadly missed but so fondly remembered by all that had the pleasure of knowing him. My 21 years working for him were so fulfilling and it was indeed an honor to have shared those years with him and his wonderful family.
Bill was the most courageous man I have ever known and lived life to the fullest. His zest for life was evident each and every day.
